I'm taking the lazy way out, but can someone tell me who currently owns each of Jerry's guitars? Are any displayed publicly (Rock & Roll HoF, Santa Cruz, etc.)?

IF Phil is talking:

Per Phil:

I love playing with Ryan because he’s fearless; because he doesn’t have to do anything the same way twice; because every idea he throws out in a jam is a little gem that cries out “polish me”; because he has about nine hundred voices that he can use like a Bene Gesserit; because of his huge heart and enormous talent.

I like it that we deconstruct the songs so that verses are transposed, or the bridge comes in early, or the jam leads back to a verse instead of a chorus. I like it that we have to be on our tippy-tippy toes to make the acute left turns and abrupt changes that Ryan likes to spring on us. I like to spring those kind of changes too- what do you think I’m doing when I talk into my mike and you can’t hear me? I love playing with Ryan because he takes me back to when the Grateful Dead were young, fearless, crazy and didn’t give a shit about what other people thought we should do. If what you desire is the perfect rendition, there are many excellent bands that perform Grateful Dead songs- but I have never been about perfection and never will be. I do promise that I will always do my best to follow my weird. I hope you will join me, but I do understand if your path takes you elsewhere. I will also say with no hesitation that Jerry would have loved Ryan and his fearless interpretations of his songs. It’s funny, but I feel Jerry close to me whenever I am around Ryan.

— Phil Lesh (January 2006)

If you know better than Phil, please let me know. If you don't, and perhaps you saw the Patty Duke Syndrome and then Whiskeytown (as I did many, many a night), then I might give a flying fuck about your criticisms of Ryan. But I seriously fucking doubt it.

Better to put in a glass case than to have it played?

Didn't criticize anyone. Just curious. If guitar sold at auction in 2002 and that picture is from 2005 who actually owns it now?

Phil has been playing with the same tired hippies for years, to play with a guy in his twenties who fucks their songs around surely is refreshing, I get that and just because Lesh babbles his esoteric nonsense doesn't make it any better that Adam's is getting his grimey fingers on the wolk...personally Adams does nothing for me, I don't care for his interpretions of the dead's music...lastly, he wears a fucking hat when he plays, that automatically disqualifies him from serious musical discussion...

And that hack Stevie Ray often sported a lid. What a talentless bozo. I'm guessing the hat was a feeble attempt to keep what little skill and heart he had contained. Too bad it didn't work.

> beep: Does that code presuppose that the image already is hosted somewhere on the web? (in the above example, on picasa) In other words, what if it's an image from your hard drive, is there code for that?

that hat comment is pretty damn funny.

I also don't like Ryan's interpretations of the Dead's music - I prefer to him play his own. Interesting that Furthur seems to cover a bunch of his stuff.

my wife actually plays some of his solo stuff, I heard that well before I knew he did dead music...some stuff was listenable...he has a knack for assuming somebody else's sound, like a musical doppelgänger, his own musical voice is not as interesting...

He not only babbles esoteric nonsense but he drops Jerry's name alot.
He loved it back in the day when the Dead didn't give a shit about what anybody thought? (Quote above). Then why care so much now that he has to justify his endeavors in this way? If he likes playing with the guy fine but he needs to leave Jerry out of it. He such a huckster.
The latest is a restaurant? Where if you're really lucky you might find Phil noodling in the bar some afternoon with this year's latest reincarnation of Garcia? Where for 1K you get 'Total Immersion' which I guess means you get to meet him? Phil's a bit Phul of himself these days.

And those are exactly the reasons why Phil and Friends (in all its many incarnations) is/was unquestionably the best of the post-Grateful Dead outfits. Phil Lesh was the beating heart of the Grateful Dead and the prime custodian of its legacy. The guy knows a thing or two about music. Reinvention and interpretation are what keep the music alive - otherwise it's just dead, with a very small 'd'.

Ha--DEAD...CREAM...CLIFF. I own the 4-5 caps sequences here, eh? Was that a nod in my direction, or just an appropriate "lc"...?

;)

Yes, I think it goes without saying that Phil has always been the "center" of the DEAD, for me that was even "true" during Jerry's time...of course, you know I think that Jack was the most important member of CREAM.
